Reusch start 2013 with a brand new glove collection as the German based brand aims for big things, despite a silo name the same as one of the UK’s biggest retailers the new “Argos” range is fresh new and quite a head turner. Reusch now with 2 Premier League goalkeepers here in England are aiming to show the world what they have on offer.
Our team here at The Six Yard Box were excited to see the new collection as the gloves arrived here at 6YB towers today.
Here we are taking a closer look at the top of the range Deluxe G2 Ortho Tec, first impressions were of a more solid feel than the usual top end Deluxe models of years gone by, a new improved backhand with less embossing help with the fit of the glove. Shockshiled Advanced technology helps provide the goalkeeper with more safety and advanced protection, this technology is only used on this model in the Ortho Tec glove series and the take down Pro G2 Ortho Tec at £110 does not!!
As with all Reusch Ortho Tec gloves the Deluxe G2 Ortho Tec comes with removable FINGER AND THUMB PROTECTION. The Ortho-Tec technology provides an unequalled variable and effective finger protection and by this reduces the risk of injury. The ergonomic construction of individually removable sticks totally adapts to the shape of the fingers though we found once on the hand getting movement in the fingers was quite difficult due to the bulky spines and heavy embossed backhand, if it’s ultimate protection to the fingers you want then Ortho Tec is the way forward.
Overall Reusch deliver a quality glove but there’s the issue of the Argos Deluxe G2 Ortho tec price tag, suggested retail price is £124.99 €153.00 ¢201.00 which is way out of many’s price range.
